VHS of ‘Hellraiser’ keeps appearing on top of bus stop...

A VHS copy of ‘Hellraiser’ keeps appearing on top of this bus stop, and nobody knows why

An Elephant & Castle bus stop may be a portal to hell, according to a peculiar story we picked up from Peckham Peculiar. For the last few years, a VHS copy of 1987 horror film ‘Hellraiser’ – the moving tale of a chap with a pincushion for a noggin – has sat atop the bus shelter by Lidl on Old Kent Road. You’re thinking, ‘That’s just littering.’ So were we. Until a second copy appeared. And then they both vanished. And then they came back. And vanished again. And returned again. And then a copycat VHS turned up on a Stoke Newington bus stop. Is it a prank? Some kind of Walworth wormhole? No idea, but we’re obsessed.

True story! I used to go past that very bus stop on Old Kent Road every day on my way to work. From the upper deck, I often spied said VHS tape on top of the bus stop. At some point, it was so weathered it was almost unrecognisable, and got replaced by a new copy. Never did get to the bottom of that mystery... it hasn't been there for a while now though; always check if I go past it in the bus!
